Connecticut state college system spokeswoman headed back to Capitol

Juliet Manalan, who was tapped by the state’s largest public college system as its spokeswoman last fall, is heading back to the state Capitol.

Manalan will become the director of communications for Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman Feb. 21. The president of the Connecticut State College & Universities made the announcement Tuesday in an email to top officials in the college system.

Before joining the college system, Manalan worked in Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s communications office. She was named the spokeswoman of the college system after Colleen Flanagan Johnson, who also worked for the governor, stepped down to work for a private company.
